Excerpt from Term Paper :

Kozol states that these high school students: "...seem far less circumspect than their elders and far more open in their willingness to confront these issues." (2006) in fact, it is stated by a fifteen-year-old-girl named Isabel that Kozol reports having et in Harlem who attempted to give an explanation to the manner in which social segregation was understood by Isabel and her classmates: "It's as if you have been put in a garage where, if they don't have room for something but aren't sure if they should throw it out, they put it there where they don't need to think of it again." (2006) When Isabel was asked "if she thought America truly did not 'have room' for her or other children of her race..." (Kozol, 2006) Isabel's friend also being interviewed stated: "Think of it this way...If people in New York woke up one day and learned that we were gone, that we hade simply died or left for somewhere else, how would they feel....I think they'd be relieved..." this young girl is stated to have "solemnly replied." (Kozol, 2006)

IV. ROLE of COLONIZATION in RACE/ETHNICITY HIERARCHAL STRUCTURE

The work of Buck entitled: "Worked to the Bone, Race, Class, Power, and Privilege in Kentucky" published in the Monthly Review Press states: "The dominant history says Native Americans described Kentucky as a 'dark and bloody' ground due to the battles fought in the wars in the push to colonize the American Indians which also resulted in obtaining control over the ownership of the land as well of these different systems of culture within these tribes of Indians. Among this culture it is not so much what the individual owns but what the contributions the individual brinks to...

...

However, in today's economic society individuals are severely divided by race/ethnicity. One example of this is in the country of India where the caste system is so strictly adhered to by those who hold the Hindu beliefs. Race/ethnicity is a categorization term it is a term used to approximate value or worth, level of education, income-level, and has other variables of genetics, physical likenesses, religious persuasion, environment and personal choices. While among the most advanced minds of today, race/ethnicity is simply not an issue if endeavoring closely on common goals there still remain, the 'hidden' race/ethnicity problems existing and these should certainly be addressed. At the same time categorization is something that the human race cannot in reality completely do away with for every race/ethnicity wants to be counted among those present.

SUMMARY & CONCLUSION

Cultural categorization of different race/ethnicities is natural to some degree unless something is negatively denoted by the race or culture through its' categorization and yet unfair and unfit use of such has and does still occur in today's world. The writer of this work is fortunate to have been instructed wisely as to race/ethnicity values.
